two weeks from today...

i will be running the bakersfield half marathon.
i'm not nervous...yet.
just trying to focus on being as prepared as i can be.
and that includes resting when i can.

i spent the majority of this past week
recovering from last sunday's run.
it really kicked my butt...
and i was thrashed until about wednesday.
no kidding...seriously wiped out.
but i still had some good runs...
which tells me i'm getting stronger.

in school news...
i'm still feeling overwhelmed & somewhat uncertain of my teachers.
i did get a 100 percent on my organic chem quiz,
and the highest grade in the class on my stats test (87),
so i guess i shouldn't feel too bad.

spent the afternoon with my amazing daughter.
sharing lunch and some shopping to celebrate her 10th birthday.
very fun.
wish i would have taken some pictures.

here's to a great week!
